NEWS 2 Update

Last week was a big week for NEWS 2. Three people left: NEWS 2 At Noon and 5:00 co-anchor Lisa Hill, NEWS 2 This Morning Metro Traffic reporter Clark Logan, and movie critic and reviewer Dennis Cunningham.

On Wednesday, NEWS 2's desk was changed. The new desk now has less of the wood showing on the surface, and that has been changed to a lighter wood color. Other changes include more monitors, and a monitor switching system, which allows the anchors to change what their monitors show. All changes were made for CBS Sports, which will be using the desk for football, and possibly other sports (when the changes were being made, NEWS 2 broadcast from their morning Studio 59B). The desk is used on CBS's The Early Show, NEWS 2 At Noon, 4:00, 5:00, 6:00, and 11:00. Tomorrow: Don Piccin could possibly replace Clark Logan as morning traffic reporter, at least temporarily. At Noon, Todd McDermott will probably co-anchor with Cindy Hsu this week. And, it is likely that Angela Rae will co-anchor NEWS 2 at 5:00 with Todd McDermott, starting tomorrow.
